According to Wikipedia, The Black Plague, or The Black Death, was one of the most deadly pandemics in history. The Black Plague was believed to have begun in China and then spread West. It is estimated to have killed about 50% of Europe’s population and reduced the world’s population by about 100 million people during the 14th century.
It was during the time of The Black Plague that a band of thieves were discovered to be able to successfully rob the dead and their graves without fear of becoming affected by this deadly disease.
Upon their capture and subsequent charging of grave robbing as well as theft of the dying victims-they were offered a plea bargain. They were offered leniency in their punishment if they would reveal the secret of their protection against this killer disease. Since this disease was so contagious that families often died in droves, it was imperative to the communities to learn this mystical secret.
The band of thieves, legends say there were four, disclosed the secret that has lived on and protects us from air borne disease, even today. These men were, by trade, perfumers and spice traders. They’d concocted a mixture of various essential oils to protect them not only from the airborne germs, but also from actually touching the decaying bodies.
To begin with, it’s important to use quality essential oils if you plan on applying them to your skin or clothing. I only use pure essential oils that have no additives or chemicals. I have links to the essential oils that I recommend if you don’t have a favorite 🙂
